  • Description

    Description

    This is a chilled out backpacker hostel located right on the beach in the small surf town of Canoa, Ecuador. The hostel has 10 rooms for up to 34 people, a small bar and restaurant, and some nice outdoor shared communal space. There is a beach break right in front of the hostel, and countless other waves to surf up and down the coast.

    Volunteers will assist with general customer service and beautification projects in and around the hostel. You might be painting, cleaning, interacting with guests and service providers, building furniture and installations, helping in the kitchen... basically the projects we assign you will depends on your skills and what you're good at! You may also be asked to organize and lead activities for the guests, and just generally be in charge of making sure everyone here is having fun!

    *Sept 2019: I need a dog sitter for the first couple weeks of September. That will be your only job, just watch after my dog in exchange for 1 free meal per day and a free room. Please message if you like dogs :-)

    Volunteers sleep in a shared dorm room with a shared bathroom. While it is possible that guests will occasionally sleep in that same room, it is rare because it is the dorm that we fill up last.

    We try to keep things casual but professional around here. I like the staff to enjoy their work and to have fun and socialize with the guests, but first priority is always to make sure things are running smoothly and customers are getting great service.
